James Kelly scored 12 points and grabbed nine rebounds for the Hurricanes. Garrius Adams scored 14 points, while Davon Reed pitched in 10 points and grabbed five boards.
The Hokies, who were paced by Jarell Eddie, were just too hot from beyond three-point range. They connected on 12-of-34 from behind the arc and were able to finish off the comeback late against the Canes.
Kelly, Adams, Reed, Donnavan Kirk, and Rion Brown were the five starters for the Hurricanes in this game.
Miami (5-5/0-1) will travel to Savannah State this coming Thursday as they try getting back on the winning side of things.
